Together, the “Companies”.
The Companies are in the process of transferring their registered office from Malta to Belgium pursuant to Article 8 of the European Council Regulation (EC) No 2157/2001 on 8 October 2001 on the Statute for a European company (SE) (“SE Regulations”) (the “Transfers”).
The proposed registered offices in Belgium for both Companies would be located at Level 11, Office 1148 Bastion Tower, Place du Champ de Mars 5, Brussels, Belgium.
The SE Regulations provide that the Transfers transfer shall not result in the winding up of the Companies or in the creation of a new legal person.
The transfers are conditional upon the National Bank of Belgium (“NBB”) authorising FORTEGRA EUROPE INSURANCE COMPANY SE as an insurance undertaking. From the effective date, FORTEGRA EUROPE INSURANCE COMPANY SE will cease to be an insurance undertaking authorised by the Malta Financial Services Authority and instead be authorised and regulated as an insurance undertaking by the National Bank of Belgium.
The Transfers are still subject to the Companies’ shareholders approval. The plan is for the general meetings of the shareholders to be held on 20 July 2023.
The Companies are required to notify known creditors that they have a right to request copies of the Companies’ Board of Directors’ reports and transfer proposals at the Companies’ registered office and on request to obtain a copy free of charge.
